There has never been a more anti-cop president than Barack Hussein Obama. His 8 years were full of cop bashing, promoting false police brutality narratives, and embracing the violent thugs of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Barack Hussein Obama pushed the “racist cop” theme in August, 2014, shortly before the mid-term elections, when a young black man was shot in Ferguson, Mo. Since then, Obama has largely ignored the growing number of attacks on police, and his deputies slammed police officials — including the FBI director — who said his “racist cops” theme was making policing in black communities more difficult.
The police shooting that spawned Black Lives Matter and the media’s love affair with race riots. Brown was confronted by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson after Brown assaulted and robbed a local store. The confrontation became physical, and at the end of it Brown was shot dead by Wilson.
Wilson was cleared of any wrong doing by both a grand jury and Eric Holder’s Justice Department when both determined Brown had initiated the physical confrontation by attempting to secure Wilson’s gun. The incident and the protest riots that followed were covered heavily by activist, ear-plug-happy members of media who propagated the symbolic myth of “Hands of up, don’t shoot,” a reference to Brown’s supposed posture at the time of a fatal shooting (that the Washington Post deemed the biggest lie of 2015). The DOJ concluded that Brown did not have his hands up in a surrendering manner at any time during the altercation.
None of this, however, dissuaded the Obama administration from sending an official White House delegation to Brown’s funeral prior to the conclusion of the investigation. Wilson was given his walking papers and forced to move his family out of Ferguson.
In December 2014 when two New York cops were shot in their patrol car by an angry African-American man, Obama sent Vice-President Joe Biden to the funeral. In May 2015, as a he signed a minor bill named after the two dead New York cops, he didn’t even condemn the attack, even though the attacker set out to kill cops in supposed revenge for killing of African-Americans in confrontations with cops.
Yet from the very beginning he made comments on police involved incidents he knew nothing about, quick to condemn the police. In 2009 President Barack Obama turned his press conference sharply toward an iconic moment in American race relations: The arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. earlier this week by the Cambridge Police.
Gates was arrested for allegedly disorderly conduct -- a charge that was quickly dropped -- after a confrontation with a police officer inside his own home. Though some facts of the case are still in dispute, Obama showed little doubt about who had been wronged.
"I don’t know – not having been there and not seeing all the facts – what role race played in that, but I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home," Obama said in response to a question from the Chicago Sun-Times's Lynn Sweet.
Then came Baltimore. After the death of a local career criminal in police custody, the Democrat's BLM began to riot in Baltimore, committing arson and assaults, even targeting whites leaving a ballgame. All officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray were eventually cleared. But again, without knowing most of the pertinent details, Obama demonized the police.
President Obama spoke about the madcap situation in Baltimore but rather than telling protesters to go home, as analysts and peaceful residents alike wanted, he seemed to throw the police under the bus and fault them for the crisis and chaos that’s tearing through the city streets.
He said, in a televised statement: “We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African Americans, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. And it comes up it seems like once a week now, or every couple weeks. And so I think it’s understandable that, and more importantly moms and dads across the country, saying this is a crisis.”
Black Lives Matter, the organized astroturf off-shoot of the Occupy movement, was birthed in the aftermath of Michael Brown’s shooting and has managed to find itself a healthy following both in our national media and in the White House.
Whether it’s disrupting campaign events, blocking traffic on highways, or just flat out rioting, BLM is there — and so is their sort-of appointed leader, DeRay Mckesson, who has been able to spin the nice little gig into an advisory role at Twitter, a six-figure paycheck as an HR member of Baltimore schools, and as it turns out, a seat at Obama’s table.
Before facts are known in incidents involving officers and African-Americans, Deray is there fanning the flames and organizing mobs on social media with his fist in the air, except for the one time when the community of Charleston told him to take a hike.
Like Sharpton, or Bill Ayers before him, Obama plays the role of activist-in-chief and opens the doors of the Presidency to Mckesson, who makes a living demonizing law enforcement.
Videos of the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, at the hands of two police officers who seemed to have subdued him, and the graphic video of Philando Castile after being shot by an officer during a traffic stop outside St. Paul, Minnesota rocketed to the top of trends on Twitter and Facebook, sparking mass outrage from every side of the political aisle and a ton of unanswered questions.
But, once again, unanswered questions and open investigations didn’t stop Obama from giving a late-night statement where he believed it was once again his duty to use his office to comment on two local law enforcement matters while overseas in Warsaw, Poland, where he is attending a NATO conference. He even declared he “could not comment on the specific facts of the case” but somehow was able to declare they represented broader disparities of institutionalized racism in the country he has been in charge of for the past seven years.
As Obama concluded his statement, organized protests started up across the nation in cities — one of which was Dallas, Texas, where the spotlight was violently removed from Louisiana and Minnesota. A gunman, ostensibly motivated by Black Lives Matter and the desire to kill white officers, opened fire on police during a Black Lives Matter protest which left 5 officers dead and 7 more wounded.
During a press conference, Dallas police chief David Brown said, “We don’t feel much support most days. Please we need your support, to be able to protect you from men like this, who carried out this tragic, tragic event.”
So good riddance Obama.
You and your anti-cop policies are being replaced by a staunch lifetime supporter of our nation's police. During the campaigning, when others distanced themselves from the police, Trump embraced them. The statement at White House.gov says it all. Better days are ahead, for America, and for America's police officers.
Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community
One of the fundamental rights of every American is to live in a safe community. A Trump Administration will empower our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and keep our streets free of crime and violence. The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration. President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the public. The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it.
The Trump Administration is committed to reducing violent crime. In 2015, homicides increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years. In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. There were thousands of shootings in Chicago last year alone.
Our country needs more law enforcement, more community engagement, and more effective policing.
